Deliana Ianeva

Psychotherapist and Counsellor
(UKCP reg.)


Individuals and Couples

I am a qualified psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and UK Council for Psychotherapy. I offer both brief and long-term therapy for individuals, couples and groups in East London.

When we are going through a difficult time, being able to make sense of our experience, feel heard and accepted in it, can bring clarity and relief.​ 

Therapy can open up deep insight into ourselves and our struggles, and help us to find new resources and inner strength to navigate the things that challenge us in life.   

​You may be looking to address a specific struggle or just a general feeling that you are not satisfied with your life and relationships. I offer a safe and supportive space in which we can explore whatever is on your mind as I help you to unpack your feelings and thoughts. Some emotional states can be difficult. And yet I believe that they can sometimes contain important learning about ourselves. They may point to entrenched ways of being that no longer serve us or highlight forgotten and neglected parts of our self. In the process of therapy, we can consider opportunities for positive change and growth in the areas that you’re wishing to explore, as well as any unfinished healing from the past that may need to take place.

As a relational therapist, I am particularly interested in how early relationships shape our sense of self and the ways in which we relate with others in our adult lives. I pay attention to the stories that we tell ourselves about our self, our role in relationships and our place in the world. Together, we can explore such narratives in relation to the difficulties that bring you to therapy.

I find that using therapy in this way – to deepen our understanding of ourselves, bring more self-respect and awareness into our feelings, choices and actions – can open up new possibilities that enable us to live and be with others in a more fulfilling and authentic way. My working model Transactional Analysis offers a useful framework to explore any challenges that you may be facing with self-compassion and respect. It is particularly helpful for those wishing to understand areas of difficulty that keep re-emerging and find a way to break unhelpful patterns that may be holding you back.


I currently work in private practice following experience across diverse clinical settings, including a complex trauma and PTSD service in the NHS and the mental health organisation Mind. In addition to working with individuals, I also run a therapy group which explores relationships, interpersonal dynamics and communication.
